    Default Questions about big kids beds and bedding

    Hi all,

    Just wondering when your kids went to 'normal' bedding from sleeping bags.

    DD will probably go into a big kid bed in a few months and I am not sure what to do about bedding.

    Should I put her in the big bed in a sleepingbag? or with normal bedding?

    Should I get her used to normal bedding in the cot to make the change to a big bed less of a change?

    When should toddlers get a pillow?

    I am realy not sure what I should do. So what did you do??

    My son is only 10 months old and not ready for a big bed yet so haven't got much previous experince however we have already introduced a flat pillow, a sheet and a doona. He has had these for a few months and sleeps fine with these and no sleeping bag. I'd think maybe introduce a sheet or blanket and remove the sleeping bag, then once she can sleep with this ok add a pillow and then move to a big bed. Do them in small steps and she should be fine. Goodluck!

    there is such a thing as a toddler pillow? I never know that

    Thanks for the info, do your kids get themselfs tangled in the sheets n stuff? DD moves all over the bed so Im worried she will get lost in the sheets n stuff.

    I don't think you are supposed to put them in a big bed in a sleeping bag (I asume in case they fall out - I never used a sleeping bag so I am not sure)
    DD went into a big bed at 13 months with a toddler pillow - I just just given that pillow to DS and she has a regular one not that her head is on it that often anyway, same with the covers it is rare for herto be under them and she is a wriggler too.
    DS went into a big bed a 8 months and has the toddler pillow in his bed but it is just at the top where the space between the top of the bed and the side rail is, he sleeps on just the mattress and has no bedding either (well the quilt and top sheet are folded to the bottom of the bed.
    Both kids sleep with the AC on 27 (we live in Darwin so that is just cool enough) DD sleeps in usually shortie jammies (or if it has long lesg light cotton ones) and DS sleeps in bonds leggings and a long sleeve t-shirt (I am trying to get some use out of the PP tops I bought for our stay in Brisbane before he grows out of them) I'll by him regluar little long legged jammies when he needs new ones.

    HTH Good luck with the transition
